Apple Marco Arment: "After two years, the Mac Pro was 'updated' today, sort of: now we can choose slightly faster two-year-old CPUs at the top end, and the other two-year-old CPU options are cheaper now. That's about it. No Xeon E5 CPUs, no USB 3, no Thunderbolt. They're even shipping the same two-year-old graphics cards. Same motherboard, slightly different CPU options from 2010. That's it. The message is clear: Apple doesn't give a shit about the Mac Pro." Paint, red, scout, girl.

Maybe I'm a bit too curious for my own good, but I thought this would be the huge advantage in switching to intel chips : no excuse for not using the latest and greatest chips.

I'm sure the profit margins have only gone up on using those parts. So what gives? Are they that lazy, or that greedy?
